The Pacific Rim trailer has arrived!
Directed by Guillermo del Toro, the film tells the story of a world attacked by giant monsters (called Kaiju) who mysteriously appear from beneath the ocean. To combot the threat of the Kaiju, a special type of weapon is created - massive robots (called Jaegers) which are simultaneously piloted by two soldiers, whose minds are locked in a neutral bridge.
In an interview with Wired, Del Toro commented;
"We are working with actors that I absolutely adore. Idris Elba, Charlie Day, Charlie Hunnam, Ron Perlman. It's really, it's a very, very beautiful poem to giant monsters. Giant monsters versus giant robots. Twenty-five-story-high robots beating the crap out of 25-story-high monsters. We're trying to create a world in which the characters are real and how it would affect our world politically, how it would affect the landscape if creatures like this really came out of the sea."
The film will open in UK cinemas on July 12, 2013.
